If you think this is a good (or bad) idea, please vote on Connect using https://connect.microsoft.com/WindowsServerFeedback/feedback/details/540864/allow-rdp-connection-from-hyper-v-manager
Many times when connecting to a Guest from Hyper-V manager it is convenient to have the full feature set of a RDP connection instead of the restricted feature set of a Virtual Machine Connection.
The Hyper-V Manager provides a useful hub for managing Guests, but currently it is necessary to leave this tool and go elseware in order to get a full-feature RDP connection. It would save time if it was possible to open a RDP connection direct from Hyper-V Manager.
The Connect option in Hyper-V Manager option should show both VM Connection and RDP Connection options. It should be possible to set which option will be the default connection method.
